Post Driver Question
I am considering about making my own speaker cabinet. My friend and I are very experienced in Do It Yourself speakers systems (home stereo/theatre systems). We are just not sure about what drivers (speakers) are good. Do any of you have a favorite speakers in your cabs?? Know of any ups and downs with the ones you like?? The sound I am looking for is a Gilbert sound, something around that atleast. Any idea's you have would be appreciated.

Also I would need to buy an amp for this. Something no bigger than 50 amps, that is just overkill. Any ideas there?

Are Eminence speakers any good? I did a quick search and heard a lot about them. Any thoughts?

Also how many watts is enough? This is not for any type of performing or recording. This is like a practice amp, I just don't want some itty bitty Crate amp/speaker combo.

When you say celestion 30's do you mean the G10C-30?
Also how come most descriptions for these drivers say great for jazz or blues. I want a rock/hard rock amp with rock speakers. Do they exist? Or is everything called jazz :(

That would make a good cabinet being able to handle 300 watts (4 X 12" 75 watt speakers)

I agree with the celestion 30's and greenbacks, too

Celestion vintage 30s are the only real way to go.... depends though if you are making a 2x12 or a 4x12..

personally i really dont like how the marshall cabs everyone uses sound.. with the gt-12 75 watt speakers.. they sound generic as hell to me.. but i have those same speakers in a marshall 2x12 and it sounds amazing.... so i wouldnt reccomend them in a 4x12, but a 2x12 they sound great... if you are doing a 4x12, definitely go with the celestion vintage 30s.

Here my friend is the ULTIMATE speaker and the ULTIMATE cabinet!!!

Image

The GBE 1240-V75 Loudspeaker
We've taken the most sought after sound in guitar speakers and made it affordable. An imported cone from England with a 1 3/4" voice coil combine to reproduce smooth, distinctive single notes and punchy, warm, rich power chords. The design and performance of our V75 loudspeaker can be compared to the most prominent guitar speakers available.


Image

This dynamic 2 x 12" ported guitar cabinet is designed for monster tone and performance. And of course, who better to recognize great tone than George Lynch! After many years as a GENZ BENZ 4 x 12 endorser, George has labeled this design as the cabinet he is proud to put his name on. Each cabinet comes with George's autograph on the back jack panel. The unique design features multiple ports and a flexed baffle. The porting produces a punchy low-end crunch, while the flex reduces the boomy standing waves and increases the projection of our GBE 1240-V75 speakers. The result is a huge sounding 2 x 12" cabinet with rich, distinctive tone, which can out-perform many 4 x 12's. Wired for mono or stereo operation.

Specifications: 150W RMS/4 ohms or 16 ohms (mono), 75W per side, 8 ohms (stereo), 21"H x 30"W x 14" D, 62 lbs.

2 important factors:

1. Closed back Cabinet (insulated)
2. Notice the port holes in the front

BEST freakin cabs I've EVER heard!!!...X

I noticed. I personally enjoy sealed encolsures as opposed to ported enclosures. Ported always seems to be a little too boomy for me. And a cealed enclosure has a better refresh rate, very small, but the responce time is there.
